How to prepare for your session | Denver Boudoir Photography

Hello Living Social Ladies!

First of all Thank you to those of you who purchased the Living Social deal! I can not wait to meet all of you ladies and please bare with me while I adjust to some “growing pains” (I am not use to this high of volume). Boudoir Denver is a one woman show and I should hopefully always return your emails and photo calls with in a 24 hour period.

Many of the phone calls I have received over the past few days have been full of excitement but also a lot of questions. Hopefully this post will answer many of those questions as you prepare for your session!

Where does the session take place?

UPDATE! BOUDOIR DENVER HAS MOVED! Although the living social deal has a different address on it, Boudoir Denver has a new studio in Westminster. I hate to confuse anyone but the move is honestly for the best and has lots of great photo opportunists. The new studio address is… 8120 Sheridan Blvd. #A311 Westminster, CO

How do I book my session & What are your hours?

You can book your session by phone or email. To be honest email is the best form of contact since I can check your email at any time. Hours are by appointment and are flexible with your schedule. Mostly evenings and weekends.

What do I wear or what should I bring?

Lingerie is the obvious choice, but it does not have to be! It is completely up to you and your comfort level depending on how little or how much skin you show. If you are a little more conservative even suggestive clothing showing off just your legs or cleavage is sexy too. Whatever makes you feel beautiful! I specialized in both boudoir and pin up photography. What’s the difference? Pinup is more playful innocence while Boudoir is more sensual. Pin Up became really popular in the 1940’s, so to really complete the pin up look I suggest using a hair and makeup artist that can transport you back to another era!

Bring props to your session to make it more personal. Props can be fashion accessories like pearl necklaces or jewelry, flowers, hair pieces or hand mirrors. Or incorporate your sweetheart or your own hobbies. Is your husband a pilot or do you both love travel? … Bring maps, vintage suit cases or globes. Does your boyfriend love music or play in a band? Buy some vinyl records to use during your session or even strike a pose with his guitar.

Either Boudoir or Pin Up check out my Pintrest boards for inspiration on what to wear for your shoot and also different poses.

How many clothes changes am I allowed?

You are welcome to change outfits during your session. I suggest 3-4 changes for good variety in your session. Too many changes will take away from your photo time and ruin the flow of your session.

Does my session include hair and make up?

The Living Social deal does not include hair and makeup. You can do your hair and makeup on your own or I highly recommend on of these lovely ladies, they will do a fantastic job and please let them know that I sent you!

Can I buy other a digital copies of my photos or more prints?

Of course! If you would like to add to the Living Social deal you will have the opportunity to place an order for additional items when you see your photos in your online gallery. We offer a DVD with digital copies of your photos, photo albums, calendars and more. For a price list please email me.

How long does it take to get my photos back?

It takes about 1 week for me to get your photos edited and into your online gallery. Then 1 more week to have your prints delivered. So a 2 week turnaround is to be expected. For albums and calendars please allow an additional week.
